Which town in South East Netherlands is best for a cultural experience - sorry strange question but visiting friends want some 'genuine' dutch culture.
Delft and Maastricht. The first as famous for the pottery and second because it is considered the oldest city in the Netherlands and has so much history.
That sounds like a plan and thanks for that - I assume that they can get a guided tour of both cities from the tourist office?
Re Maastricht - I agree, and there's lots to see in the surrounding area. Have a look at the Tourism website - http://www.vvvmaastricht.nl/en/home.html also http://www.visitlimburg.com/
